In 2011, there were an estimated 100 million people worldwide experiencing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is most commonly characterized by an airway obstruction and can result in snoring, choking, 10-40 second pauses in breathing, restlessness, and gasping for air.
Obviously, OSA can interrupt sleep, and should be taken very seriously. Those affected can exhibit impaired concentration and excessive daytime exhaustion. Such adversity can lead to workplace occupational mishaps and a greater risk for vehicle accidents. It’s even been stated that a person with untreated OSA is potentially more dangerous than a drunk driver when placed behind the wheel of a car.
Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment Can Help
If you suspect you have obstructive sleep apnea, the first step is to consult your physician who will most likely refer you for a sleep study. Once an OSA diagnosis is received, the next step is to contact Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment, and seek out a breathing machine rental.
Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment offers a wide variety of options to support airflow during rest. One of the more common breathing machine medical devices designed to maintain airflow during sleep is known as a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine. During an episode of apnea, the airway experiences episodes of collapse, causing the OSA symptom. A CPAP machine is a portable device that gently blows air into the airway, keeping it open throughout the duration of sleep, and is available for rent from Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment.
